This publication reports on indicators relevant to health status and health outcomes, determinants of health, and health systems performance for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in the Australian Capital Territory. The report is based on the national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health performance framework 2012: detailed analyses report. Jurisdiction-specific and national comparisons are presented.
Improvements have been seen in health assessments for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 55 and over, allied health-care service claims, immunisation coverage for children, literacy levels (years three and five), and retention rates for high school students.
Areas of concern include pregnancy and smoking, alcohol consumption for ages 18 years and over, levels of disability, and breast cancer screening for women.
